Mellow Yellow

There is something about yellow that I love. Right off the bat, I can think of a ton of yellow clothing items that I've owned over the years:
- dress trimmed with daisies (c. 1972)
- halter top and matching shorts (c. 1976)
- belted blouse (c. 1982)
- polo shirt (c. 1984)
- cropped leg cotton overalls (c. 1984)
- pumps (c. 1985)
- oversized shaker knit sweater (c. 1985) - worn with the pumps and stirrup pants, ha!
- dropped waist t-shirt dress (c. 1985)
- swirl print yellow sheath dress (c. 2002)
- raincoat (c. 2006)

And now I own a yellow:
- cardigan (I actually have 2)
- sweater
- satin blouse
- patent clutch
- patent strappy sandals
- silk skirt
This is the sweater - $16.99 plus an extra 30% off - score! This outfit also features Celia's skirt, my first time wearing black fishnets to the office (ooh), and my newish skinny belt.

I love wearing grey and yellow together because it gives me the opportunity to wear Grandma J's Anne Klein necklace.
See, Anne Klein:
Probably early 80s. Doesn't the sweater have a nice heathered texture?

  1. I have just acquired some yellow shoes off eBay.

  2. That outfit looks smashing on you! And the necklace is really special. I think yellow goes lovely with your coloring too. Sadly, it looks terrible on me, tho I do live in a little yellow house that is nice & cheery, lol.

  3. Ooh, Jane, I can't wait to see them!

    Thanks, Kayleigh! Yes, yellow is yucky on lots of people - but how nice to live in a little yellow house.

  4. I agree with you about yellow. It's a color that I like a lot too. It's funny though, now that you mentioned it I don't have much yellow in my wardrobe except for a summer T-shirt. I'll have to work on that.
    I really love that necklace. I find that Anne Klein things are sophisticatedly simple and classic so you can keep them for years as you have done with your grandmother's necklace

  5. Hey, Elaine! I forgot: I also owned a raw silk yellow blazer back in about '92.

    I love having all these vintage pieces of my grandma's.
